Hi,
My good friend is having a problem with ISO Files trying to transfer them to an external drive.

I don't know anything about ISO files to help him but knowing the resources of Geeks to Go I am sure there must be someone who can explain what I need to know.

The computer used has XP Pro and has no viruses and the External Drive (H) is a new Terrabite(?) one.

The odd thing that pops up is in the attached photo and the External drive will vanish from My Computer but when switched off then on again the Icon (H) will appear.

Regards

Hi Broni,

I will look at that link.

The ISO file in question is 3.81GBs.

Is there something different about ISO files?

Nothing different, what Broni is referring to is the 4GB limit on FAT file systems. Unless your drive is NTFS formatted, you will not be able to move anything =<4GB to that drive.

Hi Broni,

Both the computer and external hard drive are NTFS

On the computer Used Space 46.5GB and Free Space 12.0 GB.

With the Video files that he is trying to save as ISO files are not that much smaller in size is it worth the hassle to try and save as an ISO file?

In this case, file size won't matter, then.

Hi Broni,

I went to the website and downloaded Max128k Filter Driver and Instructions and then completley backed up the Registry. (I come well trained).

In the instructions it states:

Navigate to "My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\SBP2".

But no there is no SBP2 present. So I stopped.

You went to wrong place in registry.
You should go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

You need to look on the right hand side. What you are looking for is the "LargeSystemCache". Per your picture,it is the 4th one down. It is set to 0 like the instructions say, so you are good on that one.

Hi 123Runner,

I just don't know enough about the Registry so I tend to go very slow, add photos and careful. I shall continue tomorrow on Mark's computer.

Not a problem. I tend to not play in the registry because it can wreck the computer. Pictures are always nice. I have been following this, but unfortunately can not add much to help. I just know that from the picture, you are good on that 1, unless Broni wants you to do something with it.

How is H drive reported in Disk Management? Can you post a screenshot?
Can you copy/paste ANY file to that drive?
